This was my first time using motion tracking in Adobe After Effects and it was fairly easy. I started by creating a null object (you can do this later but it doesn’t matter doing it early). Open the tracking tab and drag the box to an area with high contrast. For this specific video I chose it’s left eye. Press play and let the area be tracked. After that, apply the track to the null layer and create a new layer that will be paired with the tracking. Parent the new layer to the null layer and you’re done. Continue reading

This is a warmup exercise using the puppet pin tool in Adobe After Effects. The octopus was originally in one layer with the background so I brought it into Photoshop. I selected the octopus and cut it out and filled the space behind it using the content aware fill. Now that the octopus was in a separate layer I brought both layers into After Effects and placed pins on the different sections of the octopus. I moved the arms and head around and brought then back to relatively where they were originally positioned so it looks like it is breathing.
